Day Eight

Day Eight



Sue Barker introduces further coverage of day eight, where the ladies' singles quarter-finals are set to continue along with remaining matches in the men's singles fourth round, should there be any. Novak Djokovic and Adrian Mannarino opened proceedings on Centre Court on this day in 2017, with the Serbian second seed running out a comfortable 6-2, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 winner over the unseeded Frenchman. The women then took centre stage, as Venus Williams, Johanna Konta, Magdalena Rybarikova and Garbine Muguruza all booked their places in the semi-finals at the expense of Jelena Ostapenko, Simona Halep, Coco Vandeweghe and Svetlana Kuznetsova respectively. Five-time champion Williams made light work of Latvian Ostapenko, winning 6-3, 7-5, while home favourite Konta edged out Romania's Halep 6-7 (2-7), 7-6 (7-5), 6-4. Both of the remaining quarter-finals were two-set affairs, with Rybarikova beating Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-3 and Muguruza overcoming Kuznetsova 6-3, 6-4.
